Have stayed there a few times now. The place is impeccable, the hosts Aaron and Kendra are extremely friendly and helpfull. If you go once, you will come back. Excellent value, I recommend it to all.

The young couple (owners) do an excellent job. The rooms were very clean. They even had towel sculptures to greet you daily. We would highly recommend this motel.

I had never been to PEI before, so maybe this is normal for them, but not in my city! When we pulled into the parking lot to inquire about rates, the owner of the motel actually came outside of the office to greet us, and offered to show us the room before we booked it! We were astounded. The rate...

We loved PEI and the Wedges (Aaron & Kendra) were wonderful "hosts". The motel is older but newly remodeled....very clean...very comfortable and quiet...beautiful gardens around.

The host was incredibly nice and gracious. He even showed us the room before we purchased the night stay. I'd been on the road for weeks and not one motel except Cairns took the time do that. Next time I'm back on PEI I would definitely go back!

We stumbled upon this small family run owned motel. The staff was friendly and welcoming. Value priced. Recent upgrades and well kept. Housekeeping helps you feel welcome with a towel animal on your bed. We were treated to "Lonnie the Lobster" and ".Gabby the Canada Goose". The fountain and gardens are welcoming. The motel only has 20 units. It is...

Our family (3 adults) stayed at the Cairns Motel for 2 nights. I am very particular about the rooms that we stay in and I must say that we were very pleased with our stay at the Cairns.

We were soaking wet and caught in a down pour and would have been happy with almost any port in a storm. We were referred to Cairns Motel by the Tourist Information Bureau. This is one of the cleanest and comfy-est rooms ever to be called a motel!. The beds were heaven, flat screen TV and wireless internet. Laundry facilities...
